What is a Ninja Bun?

A Ninja Bun is our own take on the traditional Taiwanese Gua Bao, a popular Asian Street Food item. 

We call it “O Prego Asiático” (the Asian sandwich) – and it’s bold, fresh, and packed full of flavour.

Homemade
and unique

What we do is authentic and you can taste it in the first bite. 

Our Bao are made following a traditional baking process, using the finest ingredients.

They’re hand baked every day, within Mercado da Romeira.

Free from palm oil, artificial colourings and preservatives

Our Bao buns are made with unprocessed flour and natural yeast.

Locally supplied

Whenever we can, we source our ingredients from local suppliers.

IT ALL STARTED IN EDINBURGH

Markus Pilgram created Ninja Buns in Scotland, where it attracted rave reviews, and picked up a Street Food Scotland award.

Ninja Buns then evolved into Ninja Kitchen, a restaurant concept offering a wider range of Pan Asian dishes.

Together with two Portuguese friends, Markus is bringing back the original Ninja Buns Street Food to Almada, Portugal.
